Vaccination against COVID-19 is mandatory for all workers in Italy since October 15. [5]

In the first months of the vaccination campaign, the governmental agencies targeted the health medical and administrative personnel, together with the guests and personnel of nursing homes. [6]

In the second phase of the campaign, elderly people and public service personnel should receive the vaccine. [6]

Vaccines

The Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine was authorized by the European Commission on 21 December 2020, on the same day after receiving recommendation for granting conditional marketing authorization by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Chronology

December 2020

The vaccination campaign started on 27 December 2020, when Italy received 9,750 doses of the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. These doses were entirely used in the following days to vaccinate part of the medical and health personnel of hospitals.

The Italian vaccination campaign was coordinated and agreed with the European Union (EU). The EU countries, as per previous agreements, received the vaccine provisions according to a centralized plan developed by the European Commission. [12] [13]

On 30 December 2020, 359,775 doses of vaccine were delivered by Pfizer–BioNTech. [12]

On 31 December 2020, 110,175 doses of vaccine were delivered by Pfizer–BioNTech. [12]

January 2021

From 30 December 2020 to 1 January 2021, 469,950 doses of vaccine were delivered by Pfizer-BioNTech. [12]

From 5 January 2021 to 7 January 2021, Pfizer-BioNTech delivered another 438 750 doses. This type of vaccine must be stored at -70 °C. The first Italian region to start with vaccinations was Lazio, at the Spallanzani Hospital in Rome. Subsequently, the vaccines were distributed in the other Italian regions.

On 6 January 2021, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) gave its authorization for the Moderna vaccine. [14] At 8 pm on 7 January 2021, 379,910 people were vaccinated in Italy. [12]
According to a scientific study of COVID-19 virology, the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine also protects against the two mutations of the virus that have spread in the United Kingdom and South Africa. [15]
Both strains share a common mutation called N501Y, a slight alteration at one point in the protein that covers the virus. [15]

On 10 January 2021, the Campania region in Italy had the highest percentage of administration compared to the doses possessed. It also claimed to have exhausted the stock. [16] [17]

The European Union is in sharp confrontation with AstraZeneca on the timing and quantity of vaccine supplies. This leads to a serious delay in the Italian and European vaccination campaign. [27]

On 30 January 2021, AIFA limits the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine from 18 to 55 years.
